Montecristo Tubos Cigar Review

This 6×42 cigar comes packaged in a cedar sleeve, inside an aluminum tube with a screw on cap. It features a medium tan wrapper with a dry, toothy buttery texture, minimal veins, tight seams, triple cap and soft tobacco aroma. First light reveals a slightly snug draw, good smoke output with medium-full body flavors of a very deep tobacco and strong wood with a bit of pepper finishing long. The first third brings a very dry, sharp cedar and pepper on the draw, while the finish gets a bit longer and shows a spiciness over the tongue. The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes dropping the ash in a solid chunk. Construction is flawless with a perfect burn draw and smoke output, very thick and rich. Flavors get a bit heavier with the wood coming up and the finish even longer. Ending at 50 minutes the last third adds a touch of creaminess and sweetness while the wood is still big and bold. Thank you very much to viewer Ralph for generously sending this in!

    I have a lot of Monte Cristo here in my store but not this particular tubo, would you consider this one if you had a retails store???

    I had one of these many moons ago, but I’ll be damned if I can remember what it tasted like. I do still have the tube, though. I’ll say one thing for Montecristo, every one I’ve had – which isn’t very many – had great construction and draw. Too bad the price has gone up so much.

      I like the Cristo classic in Robusto. They have gone up to $10 a stick at my local shop. Of course by the box is much cheaper.

    I have a churchill of this in my humidor waiting to be smoked. I hope it is as good as this one.

    Ever had a Montecristo Xanadu? I’ve had one in my humidor for a few months.
